Details

Join us for the movie Thank You For Smoking. A satirical comedy which follows the machinations of Big Tobacco's chief spokesman, Nick Naylor (Aaron Eckhart) who spins on behalf of cigarettes while trying to remain a role model for his twelve-year-old son.

'A Savage and elegant satire' - Roger Ebert. Beforehand we'll have a presentation by Edinburgh Skeptics' very own David Frank, a marketer, and MSc Marketing student at Edinburgh Napier University. He'll expand on some of the marketing tactics cigarette companies have use in response to marketing restrictions, as well as the current legal status of cigarette advertising.
